    Intact Civil War Cartes De Visite Album With 40 Images. An increasingly hard-to-find Union CDV album that has not been tampered with. Twenty sturdy leaves with gilt edges contain images of Union officers, statesmen, patriotic children and topical scenes of the era. Included are likenesses of nationally known luminaries such as George Meade, John Erikson, Horace Greeley, Elmer Ellsworth, U.S. Grant, Ambrose Burnside, Phil Kearny, Abraham Lincoln and Winfield Scott Hancock. There are also two unarmed portraits of anonymous Union soldiers and two CDVs depicting the sea battle between the U.S.S. Kearsarge and the C.S.S. Alabama. (A penciled notation mislabels one of these as "The Trent Affair"!) The images have not been removed from the album, but likely contain wellknown backmarks such as Anthony's or Brady's. Aging as expected, cover somewhat loose. Overall very good condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
